Netanyahu is both a Jew and an Israeli and he has forgotten nothing. The writer forgets that Israeli is a Jewish democracy and Netanyahu is the political leader of that democracy with a leaning. He cannot be all things to all people. The author forgets that Judiasm perpetuates because there are religious Jews. The non religious or reform Jews ultimately fade away and become assimilated. They are Jews and they are important to Judaism and to Israel but they are no longer the backbone of Judiasm and no longer the structure upon which Judiasm is built. And it is that group that elected Netanyahu.
